How time flies! Can you believe it is almost time to head back to school? We are officially in that “back to school” season. “Yippy” a new start, a clean slate and most especially an opportunity for your child to catch up with old classmates and even new ones.

However, it is important we prepare the kids for the upcoming academic year rightly, so the change does not catch them unprepared and off-guard. Which is why we at Booksville have put together quick tips to help get your child in the right frame of mind for the new school year.

 

  • Start small (Begin a revision hour)

If just for an hour a day, try to engage your child with the past grade’s work. Participate in a revision class by going through all the subjects lightly. This will help refresh your child’s memory and give you an understanding of where they are lacking behind and strong suit.
